There's an old saw that goes-- "The British and the Americans--
separated by a common language."

And as far as throwing away old words goes, I like sprinkling some of
the more unusual words in my speech and writing-- things like "nil"
and "in the offing..."

Unfortunately, those around me probably have the same reaction that I
get when someone misuses A or AN... like you just tripped on a
shoelace, and you have to replay what was said or read to get the
meaning out of it.
